Reviews: 'Doing Gender in Media, Art, and Culture' is an indispensable introduction to third wave feminism and contemporary gender studies. It is international in scope, multidisciplinary in method, and transmedial in coverage. It shows how far feminist theory has come since Simone de Beauvoir's Second Sex and marks out clearly how much still needs to be done. Hayden White, Professor of Historical Studies, Emeritus, University of California, and Professor of Comparative Literature, Stanford University 'Doing Gender in Media, Art and Culture' achieves the impossible. Miraculously, it brings together an impressive range of material, a sensitivity to multiple histories, a refreshingly innovative approach and a practical usefulness for students. Prof Mary Eagleton, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK Doing Gender in Media, Art, and Culture offers student and researchers in gender and media studies a clear and lucid overview of recent trends in theory and analysis. This vibrant, wide-ranging and brilliantly researched collection of essays is essential reading for anyone wanting an accessible but sophisticated guide to the very latest issues and concepts in cultural theory. It gathers the very best recent work of the field and provides a useful mapping of an increasingly complex terrain. Prof. Claire Colebrook, University of Edinburgh
